Options for snorkelling from Denarau

Hi, with DI obviously being reclaimed land with less than ideal swimming/nil snorkelling- what options other than a paid trip is there?

I thought there used to be a free shuttle boat/tender out to an island somewhere if you were staying at one of the hotels.

Cheers

Shaun

I don't think there are any free shuttles out to snorkelling locations. Best option is a day trip out to an island and snorkel your heart out for the day.

No snorkelling in Denerau. Its an artifical area built for tourists. Perhaps consider one of the outer islands where the water is clear and beaches good.

Correct no snorkeling in Denarau unless you want to practice in the resort pool and Regents beach Black sand is no good either.

Denarau is reclaimed mangrove swampland with black beaches. No free rides to the islands to snorkel but many options to purchase for your snorkeling trip, Bounty Island has one that includes lunch on the island which is close to the mainland so easy access.

South Sea cruises out of Denarau Marina have trips to different islands at cost, South Sea island has lots to do and a good reef.

Having done snorkeling at south sea island and castaway island, I will say south sea island is definitely a much better reef. But u will need to take a paid south sea cruise to south sea island.

Thanks everyone. We’ll probably stay at one of the islands then.
